Valentine's Day is only a few days away and by now, I'm guessing you've either already made plans and are excited to celebrate or you haven't really thought about it yet. TBH, I'm part of the latter. You see, I'm a certified NBSB. So if you ask me what I'm gonna do this February 14, nothing really ~extra special~ comes to mind. No date this V-Day? That's perfectly fine! If like me, you're flying solo, keep reading for some activities you can do on your own (or puwede rin with your barkada).
Challenge yourself to a kitchen experiment! Make your own kimchi for your next K-drama night or see if you can recreate some celebrity pasta recipes.
Make a cocktail.
Staying in? Treat yourself to a boozy drink (or two). Click here for some easy cocktail recipes. Cheers!

Plan a game night.
Go on a virtual museum tour.
Get the chance to see art galleries and museums in the comfort of your own home. There's the online exhibit of the Presidential Museum and Library and Filipina Heritage Library, to name a few.
